With Flying Colors
The tester walked to my car and asked me to roll down the window. She went through the most basic checks, as in switching on the ignition, brakelights, turning signals, hand signals and reaction time.
The first driving was obviously to back the car out of parking. Turned my head left and right and left and right, and obviously turn back to view for "oncoming" traffic/humans. That went well.
Getting out of the cark park was fun too. A left turn into stopped traffic at a junction, and sh!t, a car came out of nowhere and was stationery across three lanes!
Luckily that car turned right, the same way that i was supposed to go.  Then it was off to do parallel parking, backing up the corner, parking downslope, getting into/out of traffic, u-turn etc.
Thankfully, at the end, the tester told me i passed, with a score of 98 out of 100. She said she had to deduct two points off as i didn't hear one of her instructions to turn left at a corner. Nevermind that when she told me i was already going straight at a traffic junction.
Oh well.. can't be perfect.
